(USMAGAZINE) — Queen Latifah's car was stolen at a gas station in Atlanta Tuesday, December 20, when a thief jumped into the vehicle and took off while the driver (not Latifah) was pumping gas.
According to Fox 5 Atlanta, a male driver was using the 46-year-old actress' 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 and had pulled into a Shell gas station in south Fulton County to fuel the car. While he was pumping gas, a white BMW pulled up beside him and the carjacker got into the Mercedes and sped off.
Although Latifah (née Dana Owens) was not in the car at the time, police later identified her as the owner of the vehicle. Authorities told Fox 5 Atlanta that they eventually found the Mercedes near an apartment complex in southwest Atlanta. Security officials told the site they spotted three men near the car, in addition to the white BMW and another car.
